Well, groups can decide to stop working on a deliverable without having to recharter; further, we've had separate groups work on joint deliverables in the past.  In practical terms, the minimum that webapps needs to do is to give its consent to publication and transition decisions; that can easily be done through a call for consensus.  I trust that Art will help to nudge discussions over to the WebAppSec group.

None of that requires charter language beyond what's there already, and none of it requires a rechartering of webapps.
